AIDS Research Alliance exists to develop a cure for HIV/AIDS, medical strategies to prevent new infections, and better treatments for people living with HIV. We envision a future in which HIV and its effects on health are eliminated, and new infections prevented.
Founded in Los Angeles in 1989, AIDS Research Alliance was the first organization to claim it is possible to cure HIV/AIDS. Now, we are developing a new generation of cure-focused treatments. We are also working to prevent HIV infection as an investigational site for the HIV Vaccine Trails Network (HVTN), a program of the Division of AIDS of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Though many people with HIV/AIDS are living longer lives, the treatments are a financial burden and the cumulative side effects can be severe. With infection spreading into new communities, we are all at risk. A cure will eliminate this risk, and drastically improve the lives of 34 million people worldwide living with HIV.
We are as close as we have ever been. We have fought to keep HIV-positive people alive and with your help, we will find a way to cure them. Join us!
When AIDS Research Alliance was founded in 1989, an HIV-positive diagnosis was essentially a death sentence. Today, because of available antiretroviral therapies, half of which AIDS Research Alliance helped to develop, an HIV-positive person may live out their normal lifespan.
This marks momentous progress. But the pandemic is not over. For every 2 people who receive treatment, 5 more become infected. What we need now is a vaccine, and a cure.
AIDS Research Alliance is working on both of these initiatives. Your vehicle donation will advance our research – moving us closer to a world without AIDS.
With warm regards,
